Dear Friends and Valued Customers,

               Since 1983 IJ Gems has been a family owned business dedicated to offering the finest quality products and the best service available. During this time we've become close to many of you and highly value the friendship, loyalty and trust that you have shown us. As some of you know, I've been battling cancer for three years. It's become increasingly difficult to balance the demands of running a business against the time and energy needed in the fight of my life. Because time shared with my family is precious, I have decided to liquidate the inventory, tools and fixtures in a huge


We are offering huge reductions on our entire inventory at savings up to

               70% OFF

Everything must go. Don't miss the lowest prices in our history

Jewelry Clean and Check

IJ Gems does not charge a fee for basic 'clean and check' of your jewelry. That involves visual inspection for necessary repairs, and cleaning in our utrasonic 'bath', and steam cleaning of your jewelry, along with any recommendation for repairs that might be needed. It does not include refurbishing the jewelry which might include, for instance, polishing or application of rhodium white to again achieve the newness of the jewelry.




There is no warranty express or implied with clean and check. The inspection, and ultrasonic and steaming process will often identify loose stones, damaged prongs and other things which necessiate repairs. The ultrasonic bath and steaming may also identify loose stones and issues that were not able to be seen by inspection of the jewelry before cleaning. For more information see our 'Service and Goldsmithing' page.

The Gold Rush is on at IJ Gems!

IJ Gems will pay you cash for your scrap precious metals. We have been doing this for quite a while and so are not new to precious metals recycling. More information is located on our SERVICE AND GOLDSMITHING PAGE.

Gold is still at an amazing high, and now is a great time to take advantage of that high market price. Since 2000 prices have moved from around $300 troy ounce to over $1700 per troy ounce. It is a great time to recycle that scrap unwanted precious metal sitting in the jewelry box doing nothing.*


We are an accessible and value added business, saving our customers money from not being near the mall price, and without added sales tax.




Support your local small businesses.

Did you know that there are around 9.5 million small businesses with between 1-9 employees, with around 120 million employees? To reach the next 120 million employees it requires including all businesses with 10 to 1499 employees to make up the same number of employees that truely small business employs. See the US Census figures for further statistics.

Small businesses employ your friends, family and are irreplaceable to local communities.

MSN Money's Liz Weston says:

"Locally owned stores may not have the huge inventories of the big-box stores and retail chains. But that's actually a good thing. The salespeople at our local stores actually know what's in stock and can answer questions about their inventory. Though you may not find the "doorbuster" sales that the big chains use to lure customers, prices overall are reasonable, because these smaller shops know they're competing against the big guys and Internet retailers."


With small business, its all about YOU. When did you last feel that way in your retail experience??
